Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar who is known for his patriotic films is all set to star in another project based on the life of Ajit Doval, National Security Advisor to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to Mumbai Mirror, Akshay will reunite with Neeraj Pandey for a film based on the career highlights of Ajit Doval.
Currently, the film is in the scripting stage and will take some time to go on floors because the actor has to complete his lined-up projects and Neeraj will be working on Ajay Devgn-starrer Chanakya.

“Neeraj will first make Chanakya with Ajay Devgn, which was announced a few months ago. Akshay also has to complete prior commitments. The team wants to lock the script before making an official announcement,” the report quoted a source as saying.
Previously, Akshay and Neeraj have worked together in Baby and Special 26.
The former Intelligence Bureau Director began his career as an Indian Police Service (IPS) officer in Kerala cadre’s 1968 batch. Actively participating in anti-insurgency operations in Punjab and Mizoram, he reportedly also negotiated and facilitated the release of passengers from IC-814 in Kandahar, Afghanistan in 1999. Doval was also a member of the core team that strategised the Balakot airstrike earlier in February this year. He also served as the head of Intelligence Bureau’s operation wing before being promoted as the director. He has also been a recipient of Kirti Chakra, which is one of the highest military gallantry awards.
Meanwhile, Akshay will be seen in Mission Mangal co-starring Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu and others and the film will hit the screens on August 15, 2019.
